If I could only use 5 makeup items

Hey guys 👋 I hope you’re all having a lovely weekend & got some much needed rest… I know I definitely needed some since I’m still recovering from the busy July I had 😅 Anyways the other day I was in a rush to get ready so I decided to go for the most simplistic makeup look I’ve ever done! This is in no way a glamorous look 🙅 & I’m not even saying its a complete look, cause I didn’t do any colour correcting… lets be honest my tomato cheeks could have used it 🙈, but I had to be extremely quick as I was going out for dinner 🍝

OK so for this very simplistic, natural everyday “I can’t be bothered to get ready but I need to look human” look I used the following (maybe not in this exact order but you get the gist 💁):

Maybelline Eraser Eye Concealer:

This little beauty has become a favourite of mine in every makeup routine! Its just so versatile! I use it under my eyes 👁👁 to lighten up those bags & I even apply it around my nose 👃 as I like a bit of coverage in that region. It also works really well on my upper lip area 👄 as I have some slight discolouration there. You see what I mean about it being so versatile?! I’ll have a full review up soon ⏳ & oh I use my TRUSTY BareMinerals Stippling brush to apply it!

Soap & Glory Thick & Fast Mascara:

If you’ve been reading The Typical Beauty Blog for a while now you’ll know that I absolutely LOVE this mascara, this mascara will lift, volumise & curl your lashes like crazy 🙌 Read my full review here

L’Oreal Infallible Powder Foundation

This powder is a staple in just about every beauty bag isn’t it? Well I think it is 🤔 cause it is in mine! I think its actually the longest-serving powder compact in my beauty bag & I use it to “set” my T-zone cause it gets oily throughout the day. I also use it to set my under eye concealer!

Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid Lipstick

Where do I even begin with this liquid lipstick 😍 its SO intensely buttery, creamy & has the smoothest velvety texture. I just can’t get over it 🙌 I picked it up quite recently, maybe about a month ago BUT I can’t imagine not having it in my beauty bag now! OH before I forget its in the shade “nude thrill”. Can I just say usually liquid lipsticks dry out my lips, leaving them all flakey but this one acts like a lip balm… like a honey nourishing lip balm 👌

Benefit Hoola Bronzer

This is another favourite of mine, ever since this amazing bronzer has been in my makeup bag I havnt needed another bronzer 🙅 & with good reason. This little beauty is the perfect thing to warm up the face, contour the cheeks, chisel out a jawline or even to contour the nose (not that I’ve ever done nose-contouring 😅) but if I did this would AMAZING! To read my full review click here I use my EcoTools bronzer brush to apply it (I think its the bronzer brush?)

From zombie-to-human reaaaal quick

So thats it guys those are the 5 items in my beauty bag which I couldn’t live without because they help me achieve the SIMPLEST, easiest everyday makeup look, mind you it does look sort of like a “no makeup makeup” look so it definitely isn’t glitzy but when you don’t have much time ⏰ or energy its great!

    1. That is literally the kindest comment EVER! Thank you so much, that means so much to me! I really do enjoy blogging & I make sure I only publish posts that I really am proud of/wanted to write rather than forced myself to write in order to stick to a schedule! I’m so glad you’ll be visiting my blog often! xx


    1. I very rarely use blushes, I think I’ve only applied blusher to myself like 2/3 times. Mainly cause I never used to own a blusher but then my sister gave me her Sleek blusher as it was too coral for her skin-tone… which I didnt even end up really using anyways lol! Im such a bronzer/warm face girl!


    1. So nice to see you say that cause I feel the same way! Yay!! I feel like not many people use it cause they prefer the rimmel stay matte one, as almost every instagrammer/youtuber uses that one? 🤔 but this one works just fine for me & for you too so YAY!
